Early detection is the key to successful treatment.
Morton Plant Hospital, Clearwater, FL, USA.
In the United States today, healthcare reform is prompting an increase in education, community awareness, and early detection, as well as a decrease in healthcare costs and days missed at work due to illness. A program like the HVE Program accomplishes all of these things. People are starting to take a more active role in their healthcare. The advantages and benefits of preventive and alternative medicine are now recognized as a way to lower the cost of healthcare and as a way to minimize the loss of human life via early detection and treatment of disease. Continuous improvement, support from hospital administration, dedication of staff members, and community participation have enabled the Heart and Vascular Evaluation Program to evolve into the valuable service it is today--and the kind of service that will lead us into the future of healthcare.
